INFP-A. I didn't realize how introverted until I got married. Didn't even use that word till then because I don't like labels. Growing up I was made to feel different for not participating in social events as much as others, but I embraced it and just created my own world around this "life style ." It helped my confidence as I let the layers peel back and gave myself room to understand myself without judgement from others.
Yet I'm also outgoing, opinionated, and assertive; I just prefer to work alone, run my own show, and can spend all day not saying a whole lot. This excludes the kindred few who get me and don't mind enjoying the silence.
It reminds me of Sun conjunct Mercury people (a good chunk of the population). As interesting as a lot of them are, I can't be around them for too long without getting fatigued.
